Kannapolis Police Department earns reaccreditation

KANNAPOLIS — The Kannapolis Police Department has earned accreditation from the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA). Initially accredited in March2000, this is the agency’s fourth re-accreditation.
In November 2011, a team of assessors from CALEA examined all aspects of the Kannapolis Police Department’s policy and procedures, management, operations and support services. Verification by the team that the department meets the commission’s state-of-the-art standards is part of a voluntary process to gain accreditation — a prized recognition of law enforcement professional excellence.
During this assessment, the department was found to be in compliance with all applicable standards. In addition, the assessors described the agency as a professional law enforcement agency providing a quality service to Kannapolis. Assessors observed that the accreditation process is clearly institutionalized within the department.
The commission voted unanimously to re-accredit the Kannapolis Police Department on March 24 at the CALEA conference in Mobile, Ala. This accomplishment was achieved by the hard work, dedication and professionalism of every employee within the agency. Special thanks go out to Accreditation Manager Lori Parker, who put in many hours of preparation for the assessment.
“We are very proud of our accredited status,” said Police Chief Woody Chavis. “This distinction is a result of hard work and dedication to upholding the high standards of law enforcement. Upholding these standards enhances our effectiveness and efficiency in the delivery of law enforcement services. It improves cooperation and coordination with other law enforcement agencies and all other components of the criminal justice system. When all is said and done, maintaining our accreditation can be labeled as the right thing to do.”
